Untitled ducks (2020) vs. untitled Gottfried Helnwein painting (2005)

The initial rough sketch here below became way too busy, in regard to details, so I skipped a lot of them to keep the rough colour layout more readable.

Online lecture: Design + Diversity by Maryam Laura Moazedi, Monday, NOV 16th 2020, 5 p.m. (MET)

The lecture is held in English (Online Event information on FB).
Free registration/attendance free: CLICK HERE
(till 4 p.m. on the day of the lecture)

Hosted by Institute of Design and Communication, FH Joanneum, University of Applied Sciences.

Design + Diversity: Designing an Inclusive World

When design chooses the approach one-size-fits-all, whose size are we, in fact, talking about? Who is Mr. Normal the so-called rest needs to adapt to? What impact does it have on "the other" when designing standardisation (and the illusion of normality) also means creating deviation (in a most heterogeneous world)? Who has a voice in visual culture? Who has to live in a design ghetto?...

Design can exclude and include groups of people, can make our lives more difficult and easier, can reinforce stereotypes and debunk myths, can respect and challenge taboos, can make minorities more invisible and raise awareness, can help maintain our narrow-mindedness and help develop empathy, can harm the image of minorities and raise their status, can stabilise and destabilise power relations. Design can.

The aim of this lecture is to present creative approaches and solutions, to discuss why we need ideas like a bicycle with Multiple Sclerosis and braille graffiti, to give some food for thought and raise awareness for the power of design and how it can create a better world for everybody, no matter what age, gender, ethnicity, religion, no matter if disabled or queer.

This pretty much sums up the past days

Checking the news every five minutes.
BTW, this was the full sketch but I ended up cropping:
"Hold on, guys."

Up in the air

This here was the first ever concept sketch I did linked to a Alfred J. Kwak sequel project. Over a period of about five or six years, with lots of ons and (more) offs, I worked as a designer on this beloved TV series character from the late 1980s. My participation was originally initiated by the late Harald Siepermann himself who proposed me to take care of drawing the character. Unfortunately, the project is still up in the air, mostly for legal/business reasons.

However that may be, I was honoured - and still am - for Harald's trust in me.
